The Problem

The Tombel District Hospital is in desperate need of restoration and upgrades both in its infrastructure and quality of care provided. Lack of hospital equipments, such as beds, mattress, mosquito nets, make it difficult for patients during admission. Broken drainage pipes and lack of maintenance in and around the facility increase issues with mosquitoes which result in reinfection and nosocomial infections. Broken infrastructure such as doors, windows, ceiling – mostly as a result of ware and tear is also an issue. The hospital also has issues with insufficient staff and a functioning toilet.
